Copper Sinks

All of our copper sinks are made from 99% pure mined copper. It is mined from ore (rock made up of different minerals) and goes through a long extraction process in order to achieve a sufficient amount of copper. We cannot say our sinks are 100% pure copper because it is possible for airborne materials to penetrate the copper during production. However, it is important to note that the copper we use is not recycled from scrap materials and does not contain particles of any other metals. Copper is naturally antibacterial and will not rust or stain, making it a low maintenance choice. All of our copper sinks are made by hand and are carefully hand-hammered to achieve their textured finish.

Our copper sink selection offers a variety of options including apron, undermount, topmount, and vessel sinks. Apron sinks are mounted either over or under the countertop depending on your preference, and the decorative finish on the front of the sink remains exposed. Undermount sinks sit below the countertop without exposing the rim and are popular due to the glamorous appeal and functionality they offer. Topmount sinks are traditionally the most commonly used in kitchens. A topmount sink sits within a specifically cut hole in the countertop suspended by the exposed rim. Vessel sinks are free-standing, meaning that the sink sits directly on the surface of the countertop. They are popular choices because of their ability to transform your bathroom decor from ordinary to extraordinary.

Features & Benefits
Finish
All of our copper sinks come standard with a beautifully hand-hammered finish and aged patina that work together to conceal minor scratches and blemishes that may happen over time. Oxidation occurs when copper is exposed to oxygen, naturally creating an aged patina finish. The patina is "live" meaning it will continually work to darken the appearance of the copper throughout the life of the sink. Our copper sinks should never be polished or scrubbed because it can greatly compromise the authenticity of the aged patina.
Fully Insulated
All of our kitchen copper sinks come fully insulated which helps prevent dripping and condensation buildup under the sink. It also prevents the moisture from posing a serious risk by moving into your cabinet and causing mold and allergens to develop. Sound dampening pads are also added to minimize the “tin" sound from occurring when water is running or dripping.
